Refried beans the way Great Grandma makes them

I don't make these often, but they are worth the time and effort...

Refried Beans
Grandma Sally Duran

1 Lb. Pinto beans
2 Thick Pork Chops
2 cloves of garlic
½ onion chopped
2 dry red chili peppers stem and seeds removed.
Salt and pepper to taste

Soak beans overnight, rinse and discard water.  
Add fresh water to 1 inch over beans.  
Cube and brown pork chops.  
Add onion, pork and rest to beans.  
Simmer to tender.  
Mash ½ the beans in pot.  
Remove ½ to frying pan with 1/8th cup oil and fry till smooth and bubbly, do the same with the rest. 
Add some milk to make creamy. 
You can also add Jack cheese. (Grandma always does)

***Traditional Spanish beans ore not mashed, they are served soupy.***
